New Australian Government Space Portal Launched
The new Australian Government Space Portal www.space.gov.au contains information on the Australian Government's space-related activities and the Australian space sector, as well as links to space-related research organisations, events and international partners.
The Australian Government engages in space-related activities to support Australia's national strategic, economic and social objectives. These activities are administered by a range of Government agencies, with the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, via the Space Policy Unit, carrying prime responsibility for civil space issues.
The portal provides current updates on:
- The Space Policy Unit
- The Australian Space Research Program
- The Australian Government Space Forum
- The Space Licensing and Safety Office and
- The Space Industry Innovation Council
